He revealed: ‘My mum has been on the phone all morning, I went down to see her in Cornwall.’
On how she took the news he added: ‘She said: “Oh okay, well I don’t care.”‘
Pat revealed on This Morning: ‘When Phillip drove to Cornwall to tell me, the first thing I said was I don’t care. Yes it was a shock, but nothing as a family that we can’t support and applaud.’
She added to the Daily Mirror: ‘For him to be so brave in front of so many people was inspiring because I know how hard it was for him to do.’
